I was recently listening to the Demystifying WPA and the WPA3 Security Standard podcast and it got me thinking about how we got to where we are with wireless security access, protecting our network, our users, and so much more.
For those of you who remember the days of WEP-40, and then WEP-128, we really thought those days were awesome! That was until we realized how vulnerable and easy to compromise the keys were — where people were literally WEPonizing our wireless networks. But it’s perfectly OK because we took care of that problem. We cleaned our desks off and introduced Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), and that was secure. End of story, nothing more to add.
